Applications are automatically removed from New Relic after 93 days without sending data to our platform. You can also remove an application using the UI, once it has stopped sending data. Key metrics will continue to be available via the New Relic REST API, with the application name remaining reserved.
For more information, see our data retention guidelines.
Before attempting to remove an app monitored by New Relic APM, browser monitoring, or mobile monitoring from the UI, keep in mind:
- You can downgrade your New Relic organization to pay less or make it entirely free.
- The ability to remove an app from the UI may be dependent on permissions.
- If an agent is still sending data from an app, you cannot remove that app.
Before you can remove an application monitored by New Relic APM, browser monitoring, or mobile monitoring, the app must first stop reporting data. Do this by disabling the agent (explained below) or by uninstalling the agent completely.
If you have problems removing an app, here are some possible causes and suggested solutions:
